Try It This Weekend: Best Smores Ever

Growing up, I have fond memories of special evenings spent around a campfire. Sometimes it was on a family camping trip, sometimes it was for a Girl Scout event, and then there were times when we gathered together just for fun. I am not the most 'out-doorsy' girl you will ever meet, but if you promise me a campfire with a s'more, I will 'rough it' for a few hours :)


 In our backyard we have a great outdoor fireplace. The previous owners built it and when we moved in, my husband painted it. It makes sitting outside in the evenings nice and cozy, no matter the season or the temperature.


 A few weeks back, we grilled out and decided to do s'mores for dessert. I am a traditionalist when it comes to s'mores. We used big puffed marshmallows, graham crackers and Hershey's chocolate.


 We helped the girls roast their marshmallows using unpainted wire hangers.
 Afton is a girl after my own heart.
 Maisy preferred to eat the marshmallows 'raw'.
 Now that fall is on it's way, s'mores are the perfect dessert. Roast your marshmallows in a backyard fire, a chimenea, or even your fireplace.


 Or if you are in a bind, pop your marshmallows in the microwave. (If you've never microwaved a marshmallow, you haven't lived!) Cooking times vary, but in our house, after about 15 seconds, they puff up nice and big. Don't overcook or they will explode!
